TIGER II discretionary grants announced
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) announced a round of competition for Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grants. DOT is authorized to award $600 million under this program. Funds for the TIGER II program are to be awarded on a competitive basis for projects that will have a significant impact on the nation, a metropolitan area or a region.
As with the first round, multimodal projects are highly encouraged. DOT has partnered with the Department of Housing and Urban Development for this second round of grants—which means there will be funding available for Transportation and land use planning.
Pre-applications are due on July 16, 2010, at 5:00 p.m. EST. Final applications must be submitted through www.grants.gov by August 23 at 5:00 p.m. EST. Pursuant to the FY 2010 Appropriations Act, DOT will evaluate all applications and announce the projects that have been selected to receive TIGER II Discretionary Grants no sooner than September 15, 2010.
